Drinking a small amount of alcohol while taking Ibuprofen is usually safe if you don’t have a history of any medical conditions. Alcohol can irritate your stomach and intestinal tract and ibuprofen or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), including aspirin, can do the same thing, especially if you have been taking them for an extended period of time. This can lead to ulcers and bleeding.
All medications come with an information leaflet or have a label that tells you the recommended dosage and whether it’s safe to drink alcohol while on the medication. There are many pain killers that should be absolutely avoided while drinking alcohol.
